The New Evolve Detroit!

Evolve Detroit
if you have trouble reading this please view it as it was intended to be seen.

Greetings Detroit! and all those who grace us here
Welcome to a very condensed version of Evolve Detroit. We're in the middle of celebrating Angela's first Mother's Day, but wanted to make sure you received this. We also want to wish all mothers and mothers to-be out there a happy Mother's Day!

Huge thanks to everyone who ordered lunch last week. It was great to see you all again and we look forward to sharing with you more regularly. Below you'll find this Tuesday's menu and info about a very special fundraiser for the Lab this Thursday, May 14th at PJs Lager House in Corktown.

The Lab Fundraiser starts at 5pm so you can come by to show your support after work. There is an impressive line up and we are honored that so many wonderful musicians have offered to lend their talent. We'll also be offering Kombucha cocktails at our Kombuchatini Bar!

We also want to thank everyone who visited Sun Ships last Tuesday. It was a stunning event and they will continue every Tuesday in May from 9-11pm. (They're FREE!) I'm not sure if Detroit will be the same after the completion of this meditation series focused on Healing Sounds. All the info you require is below. This week we encourage everyone to arrive around 8:30 as the doors will be closed right at 9 with no re-entry. Though we have mats and blankets we recommend you bring a cushion or pillow to sit on.

Our May Yoga Special is intended to give everyone a chance to explore yoga at the Lab. Throughout the month all new students are invited to join us for free. Please arrive at least 15 mins early if it is your first class. We look forward to practicing with you!

There is still room in our May 22nd Vegan Indian Cross-legged Dinner Class! All the details are below.

We will you all a wonderful week and look forward to seeing many of you around town. As always, we send our blessings to you and yours!

In Health, Joy and Liberation!
Gregg on behalf of Angela & Aya, Alan and all the Lab Assistants.

Vegan & Raw Food Classes

Vegan and Raw Food Classes with Angela & Gregg
Our classes are about much more than just food preparation - learn how to reduce waste through composting and recycling, explore sustainability, meet like minded people, and share great food, information and resources. We will prepare a four-course meal from start to finish, and then sit down together to enjoy the fruits and veggies of our labor! We offer our students a unique experience and an opportunity not only learn, but also to connect with others and realize the importance of food in our lives and the world. The food you choose to eat can change the world! Space in these intimate classes is limited and full payment is required to register. Please call 313.316.1411 or email to arrange payment.

Angela Kasmala Vegan and Raw Food Chef

Friday, May 22 - Vegan Indian Cross-Legged Class - 7-9pm. This class will include much more than the delicious food we'll be making ~ learn about the spiritual role that food plays on the Indian subcontinent and the importance of ritual in the kitchen. These special evening class will include live music and an impressive vegan menu. Our cross-legged classes feature floor seating in the Lab's yoga studio. Special seating needs are gladly met. $30

Our June Classes will be listed soon. Stay Tuned...

May Yoga Special: Your first class at the Lab is FREE!

Yoga sessions at the Lab are always dedicated to the health, joy and liberation of all beings. Special attention is paid to the act of doing yoga in Detroit and sharing the personal change achieved with change in the community. Our classes are taught specifically for the students in attendance. Yoga is first and foremost about the breath and does not refer to our experience or physical flexibility. In the Lab we find common ground daily and practice from that point.

Market Saturdays are particularly energetic and our practice reflects and contributes to that energy. What could be better than visiting the market, doing yoga and picking up all your fresh fruits and vegetables?
